More shunter progress

Posted by pete_mcfarlane , 18 March 2012 · 292 views

The 04 now has a full set of handrails and some Markits sprung oval buffers.I think the buffer heads project too far forward, so some packing is needed at their rear to reduce this.

The Southern 03s have larger airtanks in front of the cab, compared to the ones on the Bachmann model. The replacements on my 03 were made from Evergreen plastic tube with the domed ends filed and sanded to shape from 40 thou sheet. They are glued to the cab front (as were the original ones) - the model splits in to a separate cab, footplate and bonnet which will make attaching the connecting pipework interesting.
